Thread: Having a problem with my computer

  1. #1

    Default Having a problem with my computer

    So maybe some of the tech guys can help me out here (I am a idiot when it comes to this computer stuff)

    My computer over the past couple of days has been freezing. We installed Ubuntu on it, after the latest virus attack my computer encountered. Since then Ubuntu has been working like shit. I beliieve its just the operating system that is the problem and not necessarily hardware problems (my computer is not yet one year old). Help would be appreciated.

    Fun but sad fact: My computer froze while streaming Metallica off Youtube. Guess my computer has a issue with Metallica :P

    Linux often has an issue with particular hardware. And it may not have been installed right.

    Give me the hardware specs and we'll go from there. You may have to do a clean install if you happened to have botched it. What version of Windows before did you have operating?

    You should also consider dual boot, given your're not good on tech.

    But ya gotta give me a little more info what's going on with it or else I'm shooting darts at a board.

    If your getting computer viruses that easily on a new system, then you really need to re-think security and where your surfing around and clicking on. It's pretty easy to avoid in all honesty. Last time I got a virus is when my buddy tricked me into viewing a weird ass porn site.

    Sounds like you didn't have Flash configured right almost. Better be using Chromium.

    In the future, for best help, please be detailed on the issue concerning stuff like this.

    i'm not sure where to find hardware specs but I do know it was Windows 7 when I got it new. I'm not sure if it is possible (but I'm willing to bet its Ubuntu) that the battery life estimates are off and the mouse is overly sensitive, which can sometimes result in the mouse performing a right hand click by itself. Maybe I just need to update the drivers? Would that be causing the crash?

    Heh, drivers work a lot different in Ubuntu. Unless their high tech graphics cards, the one you got is usually the one you got. And that wouldn't be causing the crash to my knowledge in this case.

    So I'm guessing it's a laptop. The battery estimates are probably not off or your battery is trash already.

    If the mouse is overly sensitive, you can go into the hardware and change the preferences for Synatpics settings (your touch pad). Right now, you have touch click on, which I never liked in Ubuntu on laptops cause it was always so finicky.

    Depending on the laptop you have and its specs makes a difference, I'm going to guess it's one of those cheap little net books running Win 7 Starter. I'm I right? If that's so, go with Xubuntu. If not, you need to configure your Ubuntu system better. Have the person that had the know how to install it fix it for you.

    But, I don't have enough info here to help ya out though, and I can name off a hundred different things. It sounds to me you have a improperly configured system.

    I'd go back to Windows personally and learn how to better secure your system, and learn how to the use the system on a live cd before installing later.

    Best of luck.
